Shapleigh School sixth grader Dylan Anderson was named the Shapleigh School's Rotary Club of Kittery's Student of the Month for February, it was recently announced. Dylan was unable to attend February's monthly breakfast held at Kittery Estates, and the Rotary cancelled the March and April breakfasts honoring deserving Kittery students. 

Here is some of what Shapleigh staff members said about Dylan:

● “Dylan always uses Spanish when he sees me outside of the classroom. He is super polite too!” ~Mrs. Fifield
● “Dylan is a valuable member of the 6th grade chorus. In addition to his wonderful voice, he brings enthusiasm and dedication to the group.” ~Jayne Segedy
● “Dylan did a great job in PE this year. He gave 100% effort and had a wonderful attitude every class! Great job Dylan!”
● “Dylan!!! WHAT A SUPER KID! He is friendly, helpful, kind,smart, funny, creative....I could go on and on! Dylan always shows up to art class with a positive attitude and takes on every new challenge with enthusiasm. He has been working hard on improving his drawing skills this year and participated in the Inktober Drawing Challenge where students create a different drawing every day during the month of October based on a variety of drawing prompts. Dylan is also an active member of art club this year. It has been a pleasure to get to know and work with Dylan. His ability to persevere, stay positive, work hard and problem solve inspires others around him. Dylan is such a great addition to our school and his contributions make Shapleigh a better place. Way to go Dylan! This is a special honor and you deserve every bit of it! Bravo!!” - Mrs. Sutherland
● “So excited for him! He is one of the most polite, respectful, and resilient students I have worked with! He always looks for the best in people and is quick to help out if anyone is in need!” Kristin O’Neill
● “Dylan is an inquisitive student that is always willing to help out. He comes to class with an infectious smile on his face and a “can-do” attitude. He can accomplish anything he puts his mind to.” ~Mr. Bertrand
● “Dylan is a great student in class who always thinks of his peers first. He also continues to work, until he truly understands the concept being discussed in class.” ~Mr. Harris
● “It is not a surprise that Dylan's teachers selected him to be the "Student of the Month". Dylan is a quiet observer, but a deep thinker. He is empathetic and compassionate. He does the right thing even when no one is looking. He works hard, enjoys being with his friends, and has the courage to try new things. His resilience is unmatched.” ~Mrs. Martin
● We have been blessed to have this young man in our homeroom as he is a quiet but strong force behind our successful community. He can be seen helping out without being asked, checking in with others when they seem to be having a hard time, and inviting others to join him. These gift come natural to Dylan and it is clear that he truly enjoys being at school. He is one of the hardest workers in class, often pushing himself to try the extensions or to go the extra mile. I enjoy seeing his contagious smile every day; he inspires kindness in us all, and I am a better person for knowing him!! May the happiness and compassion that Dylan shows others be returned to him many times over!
